EXHIBITION Weekend Highlights
Nick Cave Print & Art for Justice
Panel Conversation | September 24
The weekend will commence with a conversation featuring artist Nick Cave and philanthropist and Art for Justice founder Agnes Gund discussing the re-release of Cave's limited-edition print for sale in support of Art for Justice. Printed by Landfall Press, this limited-edition print by celebrated Chicago artist Nick Cave alongside Bob Faust renews this historic tradition and EXPO CHICAGO's legacy of supporting mission-driven artists and their works.

Confronting Race & Representation in Museums
Composed of three peer-led Zoom sessions with past participants and new Chicago-based leaders, this special, virtual convening of the Curatorial Forum will center on racial equity in museums and institutions and promote the Forum’s two main goals—advancing civic-minded practice and the role of curators in empowering local art scenes; and promoting collaborations and knowledge-sharing across the US.
